Aberdeen Hip Hop ??

Recommended Posts

there was one French dude who did hip-hop stuff at Drakes a few weeks ago, which was really cool stuff. Also, a guy named Foogz has a project called Sir Lucif Hexe which is like horror rap like Twiztid/ICP who can be found on on www.geocities.com/murdamanrecords . I'd like to see some more hip-hop stuff myself, especially as im still in awe at Jurassic 5's performance at Leeds

For the folks here who don't know, Pierre's performance (in French) was as part of a benefit show supporting the setting up of an autonomous social centre here in Aberdeen. Think it was his very first live performance. Really cool with a dub vibe going on. He also has a show on meFM Wednesdays.

French HH is very good - the language seems to fit in very well. I love Arabic HH as well.

I'm surprised nobodies mentioned DJ A La Fu, involved in quite a few record releases, plays big gigs all over, I believe he supported Scratch Perverts european tour etc

Type his name into google (in quotes i.e "dj a la fu") and you'll get the full script.

I was going to mention Kenny (a la fu) he's signed to Big dada (a subsiduary of Ninja Tunes)...he's the opening track on "extra width", a recent comp on it (roots manuva, new flesh etc)...

an amazing turntableist. (smelling stimake?)

Couldn't agree more. His erstwhile Radio Skool cohorts Isho and Corallo (The Soulcialists) are well worth checking out too. Giles Walker know his ingins too.

The following certainly aint local' date=' but should be on interest to most hip hop enthusiasts:

Fingathing

Sunday 17th October

The Lemon Tree

Doors Open 9pm | Onstage 10pm

9 (6 concessions and Regulars)

Box Office: 01224 642230

Lifestyle favourites Fingathing return to The Lemon Tree with their unique combination of Peter Parkers turntable wizardry and Sneakys double bass - not forgetting Chris Drurys surreal cartoon visuals. The musical duo first joined forces as part of the live band for the superb Manc hip-hop and soul producers Rae & Christian and have since become a hugely in-demand headline act in their own right through the power and innovation of their live shows.

When they lock on to a groove, the effect is awesome. In a world of faceless dance acts, Fingathing's skewed breakbeat experiments provide true spectacle. NME

DJ Premier

Tuesday 9th November

Doors Open: 9 pm

The Lemon Tree

Tickets 15 (10 concessions & Regulars)

Box Office: 01224 642230

Chris Martin, aka DJ Premier, best known for being one half of the Rap duo Gang Starr, is also a DJ and record producer. DJ Premier has produced almost all of Gang Starr's tracks as well as tracks for many other groups and solo artists since the 1990s. He has produced tracks for such artists as Jay-Z, Big L, The Notorious B.I.G, Nas, M.O.P., Jeru The Damaja, KRS-One and Mos Def. DJ Premier's style of production is considered "underground" Hip-Hop or "alternative" Hip-Hop. He is known for sampling Jazz artists, as well as sampling an artist's past work, when he is creating a new track for that same artist. He is known for combining small vocal portions from multiple artists to make one hook on a track he is producing. This creative technique has made him one of the most sought after producers in Hip-Hop. DJ Premier's name refers to claim to be the first and the best in his style. His original stage name was Wax-Master C, the "C" coming from his real name.

ahhhh ha ha I've done that myself on Soundclick a few times too.

Thats just my practice bullshit to be real. Just produced teh beat on MPC and recorded it at home. I record at home so I can listen to it back for a month or so, then I know exactly what I want it to sound like then record it in the studio.

I'm recording a cd. Been working on it for about a year now. Getting 4000 units pressed, 1000 12" pressed. and I'll see how it gos.

I got a load of shows alround scotland and england but the nearest to here is Dundee thats why I ned to get some local shit down. I've no idea whoo to contact about venues and shit around here tho.

I do sets along side rock, punk, metal and other rap artists. Who its with don't bother me as long as they respect my time you know.

Anyway thanks for all the help so far keep it coming.

I don't think there's a contact on that site but Tha' Flava know what they're doing methinks.

Paul from Lava might have some contacts for you for either Tha' Flava or other helpful peoples - he's lava p. on here.

Contact the Lemon Tree and see who organises the Radio Skool nights as they're always pleasing and you might be able to get involved in that. http://www.lemontree.org

Hope something works out :)

For my money the best Rappers in the deen are Kuda and Mayhem, i did a show with them and some of the flava folk (as well as some others) and i was very impressed with their style and flow. I heard foogz and thought he was good at the whole 'nasty rap' type thing and that pierre guy is pretty cool also and he plays interesting music.

The illest however are not my type of thing, for a start they were pretty rude to me when i did a show with them for MEFM and then proceeded to rap about bitches and money. One of their tunes had a chorus that went "i want a little slap and tickle wanna do it good, wanna see your booty wiggle like you know it should..... im a player for life, play you like a player should" i reckon 'slap and tickle' is the least hip hop phrase i have ever heard, i asked my grandad if he uses it and he told me he stopped in the 50's cos it sounded so dated.

There are also Bell, Nil Munny and Wanchoo who all still play underground hip hop and have plenty of skills.
